Take a couple of store bought note books, add some stamps, patterned paper and some ribbon and you have a journal worth writing in.
The note book and visual diary are already in use, however I need to wait for 2009 so I can use the diary.
There's absolutely no point in trying to limit my use of my Magnolia stamps in favour of other stamps, now shoved even further back in the cupboard ----
I love these stamps and they should be used.
The first Summer Tilda has, as usual been coloured with H20's and highlighted with Spica Markers. Her face was coloured with Copic Markers, cause try as I might, I just couldn't get the shading right with the H20's. White marker pen used for additional highlighting. Daisy D's butterfly paper was used, with the butterflies being covered with crystal effects. All the journals/diaries have been covered with a sheet of acetate for protection.
The little button like tags attached to the spiral of the Sitting Magnolia journal are actually Magnolia Butterflies that have been stamped onto Shrinkydinks, cut out with SU Scallop Punch, coloured with Copic Markers then heat shrunk with heat gun. All the other images have been coloured with H20's. I forgot how much I loved using them, I've been trying to practice colouring with the Copics that the H20's have found themselves in the cupboard with un-loved stamps, but after using them again today I think they will be on the desk a lot more.
Artist/French Tilda has been coloured with Copic Markers and atyou Spica Markers and then covered with crystal effects. The camera and computer don't come anywhere close to bringing out the metallic sparkle. At first I thought black would be too harsh for this image, however when the sun is shining on it the image looks great - can I say that!!!!
And finally, Summer Tilda has been coloured with Copic Markers, with a little bit of atyou Spica Marker for added highlights. It's amazing how the the images can look so completely different depending on how they are coloured.
